description

I'm basically looking to tell stories, entertain people and I gain energy from audiences and their feedback. Everything else has been built around this motivation. From acting and producing for professional theatre in my teens to studying digital media, film making, acting in a couple of movies and supporting myself through voice overs, then emcee-ing and directing and producing corporate videos and going to work for a reality format in TV, writing books for publishers and finally getting some agency experience in the marketing communications space, its been a whirlwind ride. The profile below doesn't even reflect half the stuff I've done. My story-telling has been honed through all these filters. So has my experience at taking a project to its desired conclusion. Teamwork is everything. Alignment of stakeholders is key. Time management is of the essence.
